Real Time Climate Data Comparison Platform
For more information on project goals, see the http://www.rhok.org website at: http://www.rhok.org/problems/real-time-climate-data-comparison-platform
Create the database and define tables:
python import.py -c
Import ground station data:
python import.py -g
Import satellite data:
python import.py -s
Query functions and graphing functions are in analysis.py. Current usage requires specifying the graphs to generate via function calls at the bottom of analysis.py.
[ ] Investigate bugs in NASA importing (getting correct months?)
[ ] Extend the range of graphing functions and abstract some of the query structure for flexibility.
[ ] Change source of ground data to use ftp source.
[ ] Create functions to update database with new weather data and automate checking ftp / online sources
[ ] When graphing, handle -99 values from data sources that were not available in certain years.
>> Current solution requires deleting those values from the database. See CLEANUP for explanation. >> Proposed solution: a "cleanResults" function to remove stations & data from the query results [ ] Create an online CGI interface for specifying data to display. [ ] Overlay .png graphs on map image.
>> Proposal: Use Image Magick.
